7:03 am
welcome to cbs "this morning." i'm norah o'donnell with anthony mason. charlie rose is on assignment. we expect to hear serious charges as congress looks at the security situation in libya. today's hearings come in the wake of last month's attack that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. >> witnesses say they will tell a house committee that more months the state department rejected their pleas to maintain high-security at the consulate in benghazi. elizabeth palmer is there and she s new information about that deadly attack. >> reporter: the u.s. compound in benghazi now sits empty and abandoned. if the men who attacked these buildings on september 11th used heavy weapons there's few signs of it. over every window there's evidence of the billowing smoke that killed two of the four americans who died that night including ambassador chris stevens. state department sources say the attackers arrived at the gates
7:04 am
around 9:40 in the evening. as they swarmed into the compound a security agent, the ambassador and another american took refuge in the sleeping quarters of the main building which lay behind a heavy steel door that was double locked with barred windows all around. while other security agents went to get more weapons the attackers entered the building and unable to get past the gate sprayed diesel fuel all around and lit a fire. cell phone video from that night shows just how fierce the blaze of. as it took hold smoke seeped inside the building forcing the americans to try to leave. first the security agent probably through this window with the bars by then removed. the other two including the ambassador didn't follow. but at that stage the smoke was so dense the agent couldn't return. later other security personnel did tribute failed to find chris
7:05 am
stevens and it was only hours later that his body was pulled out of that same window by a crowd. now a month later post-it notes cling to the blackened walls left behind by fbi investigators who finally made it to the crime scene for a single day last week. for cbs "this morning," i'm elizabeth palmer in benghazi. >> senior correspondent john miller is a former fbi deputy director and is with us this morning. big hearings on capitol hill this morning. new information leased late last night. first we learned 230 specifically incidents in libya. was there enough security? >> and that is going to be the burning question at the hearing today. i think when you look at -- you know, i was going through all these reports tonight, this is 230 incidents. when you get to page 50 of that there's an interesting quote. it says the risk of u.s. mission personnel, private u.s. citizens
7:06 am
and business persons encountering an isolating event as a result of militia and political violence is high in capital letters. the government libya does not have the ability to effectively respond and manage the rising criminal militia related violence which can result in an isolated event. when you look at this in the context of 20-20 hindsight the state department was being told there was a problem. >> what do you expect the state department to say in response to this >> the state department will do two things. one, they are going to give the first detailed account of what happened on the ground. i believe their main point is going to be security can go up or down based on a threat situation, but we've never seen an event like this. since the storming of the u.s. embassy in iran in 1979 -- >> wouldn't that make you more protective -- given the circumstances in libya which were so wide-open, wouldn't you be more protective? >> i think you would be.
7:07 am
this is the recurring problem for the state department and i don't know how they will articulate this today. we have 280 u.s. embassies and missions around the world. they have 2,000 security agents. you do the math. every day one of them is on the phone saying our security situation just went up. the person who will be testifying for the state department is charlene lamb. this is not your average washington paper pushing bureaucrat. she's been in the most dangerous posts in the world at the most dangerous times. >> we're in the midst of a presidential campaign right now and this administration told the american people that this was a protest that went bad and that it was opportunistic and that these militia men came in and took advantage. we learned last night there was no protest beforehand, this was a planned attack. >> there's a timeline of administration statements and i think what you see there is the fog of war. it was us. the immediate where a who was reporting a lot of that based on the association with what was going on in egypt which was a
7:08 am
protest. so that information took a couple of days to clear up. >> the u.n. secretary, ambassador rice talked about -- >> susan rice has vulnerability because she was doing that a couple of days into this and they've cited a cia analysis report which, you know, actually said there was a protest. so a lot of people got the information wrong. part of the problem is that the root of your question which is this needs be an investigation into the facts and what it's come to is a debate on politics. >> john miller, thanks. new poll numbers shows how much the presidential race has turned around. latest gallup tracking poll shows 49% of likely voters favor governor mitt romney and 47% support president obama. and two other polls from the key state of ohio show the candidates are effectively tied. one of them shows romney ahead by one-point and the president leads by four. both men campaigned in ohio tuesday. jan crawford is covering the romney campaign in akron.
7:09 am
good morning, jan. >> reporter: good morning, anthony, norah. this is a state that romney really needs to win. he's spending four days here this week. we were at a rally here in northeast ohio last night. there were about 10,000 people there and they took the president's re-election chance and turned it on him. >> i've been watching some of president obama's rallies and they chant four more years, four more years and today there are 28 days before the election. i think the right chant ought to be for them is four more weeks. four more weeks. >> reporter: romney argued the president to detract from his failed record is focusing on the small things and instead of focusing on jobs and the economy an example of a small thing a big bird. >> he's focused on saving big bird is kind of a strange thing in my view because you see i'm focused on helping the american people get good jobs and brighter prospects. >> reporter: across the state in
7:10 am
columbus, president obama was talking about big bird, highlighting an issue in last week's debate when romney said one cut he would make to balance the budget was funding for public television. >> he said we're going after big bird, elmo is making a run for the border, oscar is hiding out in a trash can and governor romney wants to let wall street run wild but bring down the hammer on "sesame street." >> reporter: first lady michelle >> we believe in keeping our priorities straight. that we all know good and well cutting "sesame street" is no way to balance the budget. >> big bird -- >> reporter: the ad drew criticism asking the obama campaign to pull it from the air waves and take big bird off campaign materials. the two candidates who are not on trail, vice president joe biden and congressman paul ryan are holed up getting ready for tomorrow night's showdown in
7:11 am
kentucky. a cnn romney tried to lower expectations for his running mate. >> this is paul's first debate. i may be wrong. it will be a new experience for paul. but i'm sure he'll do fine. >> reporter: now they may be trying to lower expectations there because a poll taken before last week's debate showed people think ryan will win this one, 55% say they think he'll win versus 39% the vice president. ryan has this real numbers guy. this one who knows how this one will go. >> jan crawford, good to see you. republican strategist mike murphy is with us. he helped run mitt romney's successful campaign for governor of massachusetts. you saw jan lay out a number of those poll numbers. what's happening out there especially in the state of ohio where obama had opened up a double digit lead and now it's quite tight. >> after the debate, which was a great opportunity for romney to have an unfiltered
7:12 am
communication people are taking a second look at him. all across the country you can debate how much and where. the numbers have lunched in romney's direction. romney has the momentum and i'm not sure big bird will stop him. >> at this point how critical is ohio given the republicans have to win ohio. >> if you can't win ohio, he can. he has to win a couple of states that are harder than ohio, maybe colorado but nevada, iowa and of course wisconsin. >> you got an unemployment rate in ohio well below average. >> he can't run the simple bad economy message. it has to be a bit more. he has a path forward. he has enthusiasm. if you're four points behind in a state you only have to get 2%
7:13 am
of people's point of view to be tied. >> let's talk the big bird effect. that shiny object. it's a detraction from obama's message which was mitt romney was dishonest in the debate he didn't tell the truth about his tax plan he tried to get away from some of the positions he took in the past. >> i expect kermit to come out and attack obama. the obama team has run a competent technical campaign got rattled. they are trying to find their groove. on one hand they want to talk flipflops. then extremism. they have to come out with one theme. >> let me ask you about something mitt romney said yesterday. he was with "the des moines register" in iowa and talking about abortion rights. he said quote there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would be part of my agenda. then several hours later his spokesperson said governor romney would of course support
7:14 am
legislation aimed at providing greater protections tore life. what is the mitt romney position going back and forth. he's not on the same page. >> hopefully the campaign will get on page with him. he's doing great. >> he said during the republican primary debate he would work to overturn roe v. wade and defund planned parenthood. now he said there's no legislation on abortion rights. which is it. >> he's pro life. he would support pro life legislation. when he was governor and ran for pro life. we did a poll. people knew he was pro life. but what he said in massachusetts my focus is the economy. >> it's another one of those issues where mitt romney says something and then says something different. what does he believe? is he going to be someone who gets into office and supports anti-abortion legislation, yes or no? >> you can ask mitt romney. >> i asked him and he said no. i think it's one of these
7:15 am
examples where it's not clear what his position is. >> the president changes his position on guantanamo bay. politicians changes their position. mitt romney is pro life. is it number one priority of his administration during a cal crisis inprobably not. you have to ask him. congressional committees are asking health officials for briefings on the deadly outbreak of fungal meningitis. this morning the disease has killed 12 people and spread to ten states. 121 cases have been reported. they are blamed on contaminated steroids taken for joint and back pain and as many as 13,000 people may have gotten the tainted injections. experts say symptoms can develop as late as three months after an injection. in pakistan doctors worked through the night to save the life of a teenage girl after the taliban tried to kill her. the 14-year-old has been speaking out against the militants for the past three years. the attempted murder sparked

8:05 am
partly for being white. she argues that ut's policy of considering race in admissions gave an advantage to less qualified minority students. >> there were people in my class with lower grades who were not in all the activities i was in who were being accepted into ut and the only other difference between us was the color of our skin. >> reporter: groups that support fisher want the supreme court to end the use of skin color in college admissions and to order colleges to achieve diversity in other ways. for example, looking at family income. >> we think colleges and universities throughout the country can institute race neutral admission criteria, especially using economic disadvantage to give students a leg up. >> reporter: the university of texas achieves diversity now through a state law, that 10% plan that guarantees admission to students no matter their race from the top 10% of their class. but ut admits other students by what it calls holistic review,
8:06 am
using factors that include test scores, leadership potential and race and it's this policy that's being challenged. >> what are the stakes here? >> the stakes are tremendous. >> reporter: more than 70 groups from civil rights organizations to former military leaders to some of the largest corporations in the country have all asked the court to maintain some use of race in admissions, warning that the loss of diversity would harm business, the training of military leaders, and the quality of education. >> all students would suffer not just black and latino students all students benefit from learning together in the classroom and outside of the classroom. >> reporter: all the courts conservative justices expressed concern over the use of racial prejudice, affirmative action is on the line. the last time the court reviewed this, justice sandra day o'connor speculated race may not be needed after 25 years.

speaking of romney people close to the campaign are saying mitt romney's son tag is now one much his chief advisers. yeah. when mitt asked him to join his team he put his arm around his shoulder and he said tag, you're it. >> it's a clean joke you can tell your kids. i saw that one coming. we hear a lot about young people struggling with student debt while the price of college keeps rising. the price of attending college in texas has gone up 55% in the past ten years. >> a year ago rick perry challenged his state colleges to offer a degree that cost $10,000 or less. he's with us this morning. governor perry, good to see you.
8:15 am
>> good morning. >> there's a lot of people out there, young people are saying $10,000 would being a great. but what kind of a degree would that be? >> well, over the course over the years texas education has been well below the national average. we still are today but we want to keep it that way even with the increases we've had. so these $10,000 degrees as we laid them out is a great idea. at first people were very leery that it could not be done. over the course of the last year we had ten different institutions that have taken the challenge, as a matter of fact interdisciplinary courses are now being offered at angelo state. and i would suspect a full range of courses. obviously, the science, math and technology, those are going to be a little more intensive. but the putting in place a program where a young person knows that they can have the stability of getting a college
8:16 am
degree for $10,000 or less is going to be quite appetizing to most texans. >> attractive to a lot of people especially in the news we keep hearing college debt is outweighing credit card debt and you're proposing a four year freeze on tuition. how exactly would that work? >> well, a young person needs to have the stability of knowing what it's going to cost to go to college. this does two things if we freeze these tuitions for a four year period of time. number one it gives stability and predictability to the young person and/or their family. plus it also gives them an incentive to really be focused, to finish up in four years. one of the problems we got is that only 30% of our college students are graduating in a four year period of time. so way too much time, way too much cost, given some incentive, or excuse me this ability in a four year tuition period is one
8:17 am
of the ways to do that. after four years that tuition probably is going to go up so there's a good incentive for the student and we also give incentives to the universities to get those kids out in time by tying graduation rates to some of the money that the universities get. so both the university and the student has incentives to get in, get your studies done, get out and get in the workforce. >> affirmative action is back before the supreme court. do you support the university of texas's admission process that considers race based criteria? do you think that should continue yes or no? >> well, the university is putting forward this, but the supreme court is going to decide the constitutionality of it. the bigger issue for me is your going to have a diverse population in your universities and absolutely i think it's wise for us to do that. are you going to use race as the factor to make that happen when
8:18 am
we talk about, is that going to be the sole determining factor of how you're going to populate. again the court will decide that. but all these schools need to be really focused on getting the best and brightest. in texas over the last five years we've seen increases of over 60% in our hispanic population, over 40% in our african-american population taking the s.a.t. so we're having a bigger population, if you will, available to go to these colleges and that's good news. >> governor we want to talk about politics because you've debated against mitt romney. so with that in mind what do you think he does well and what do you think he needs to do to prepare for debate number two? >> well, mitt has been practicing debate now for better than a year and he's obviously quite talented at it and a very good debater as we saw last week. so, i suspect that this is kind of like playing for the super bowl, you already know how to
8:19 am
perform, your conditioning is good and he's going to perform as a high level. he has all the facts and he's ready to go. >> governor, mitt romney said yesterday that anti-abortion legislation would not be part of his jepd as president. is that disappointing to you? >> i think the supreme court is where that issue will be decided from the standpoint of how america is going to be impacted by -- we have a supreme court decision and so that's where, you know, i suspect that all of the focus will be -- >> governor perry, i'm sorry -- >> i'm sure very clearly he'll put people constitutionalists on the supreme court. >> we'll be back with love and theft right after the break. i love my extrabucks rewards, and right now, they're doubling! so, when i shop --
8:20 am
i earn twice as much with double extrabucks rewards. that's two times the rewards! yeah, that's what double is. i know. i was agreeing with you. it's two times. act fast and sign up at for double quarterly extrabucks rewards. don't miss getting double quarterly extrabucks rewards. i love 'em! are made with sweet cherries and the crisp, clean taste of our cranberries. i cannot tell a lie -- 'tis tasty. okay, george washington, did you take my truck out last night?
